Abdul Rehman awaits ASD Closure
Abdul Rehman 's Story
Abdul Rehman awaits ASD Closure. Abdul Rehman, aged seven, a resident of Sheikhupura has been suffering from Tachycardia and recurrent fever since birth. Tachycardia refers to a heart rate that’s too fast.
Abdul Rehman was suffering from an ear infection and high grade fever. His parents took him to the hospital. It was after a thorough checkup that the doctor provided him medication for the ear infection. When the doctor monitored his heart rate he found it to be fast. The doctor then advised Abdul Rehman to have an Echocardiogram. An echocardiogram, or “echo”, is a scan used to look at the heart and nearby blood vessels. When the results came, he was found to have atrial septal defect (ASD). ASD is a hole in the heart that allows blood to pass from the left to the right side of the heart. To correct this defect, the doctor has advised open heart surgery for ASD closure to Abdul Rehman.
As Abdul Rehman awaits ASD Closure, his parents are failing to afford the cost of the surgery. His father was a daily wage worker but unfortunately his elbow was fractured one month ago. The household is running on family support. Abdul Rehman’s father told us that:
“I was not earning much before my elbow fracture. But after the incident, I can’t even put food on my table for my family. We are dependent on our relatives. In these conditions, how can I afford my son’s surgery. I hope Transparent Hands will do something for us. ”
Abdul Rehman awaits ASD closure, but now Abdul Rehman and his family have been connected with Transparent Hands. We hope to arrange a free surgery for him. Please generously donate for Abdul Rehman’s ASD closure and help him lead a normal life.
